YouTube - Rajon Rondo's Monster Dunk vs Miami Heat.
Reggie was right in that instance- and then he really went off on Bosh, except that as he was doing so, the replay was showing Bosh challenging at the rim and changing the shot successfully. Reggie Miller is about as big of a doofus as there is.

And our defense doesn't really look to be improved all that much. It looked much better to me over that successful stretch last season. But Bosh was definitely bigger and stronger at that point.
